Steve, I got an e-mail that I had a message regarding the Fischer family query from you and I just read the message board re: Alexander Fischer and your note regarding his marriage. I wrote to you a year or so ago and then lost touch. My book says that Alexander was married to Annie Hirth who was born Feb 2, 1835 at Hokenheim Baden, Germany and she died Feb 7, 1872 in Lansing, Iowa.
They were married Apr 9, 1854 at Freeport, Ill.
I show 9 children born of this marriage.
A second marriage to Eva Cathrina (nee Heiz) born Oct, 1837 at Hatesback, Germany. She died Sept 15, 1892 at Lansing, Iowa. This marriage took place in Sept of 1872.
I show 3 children from that marriage.
At the time I wrote you I thought we had the same book, but apparently we don't. If I can answer any more questions I will gladly try. I did send an update on our family to Julie Bolhuis several months ago at the request of my mother.
My mother was Leona Fischer. If we have the same book my family is on page 12. My grandfather was Samuel Fischer.
If there is a new family history book I would certainly like a copy when it is done. I have lost Julie's e-mail and if you have it you may pass this info on to her if you wish. My mother put a date of 08-01-78 in the book I have.
